Mission and Vision

The Naval Oceanography Operations Command (NOOC) is an Echelon IV command reporting to Commander, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (CNMOC). NOOC is the operational arm of Naval Meteorology and Oceanography, overseeing seven subordinate commands, including more than 1,100 Sailors, ranging from anti-submarine warfare commands in Mississippi and Japan, to meteorology support in San Diego and Norfolk. The NOOC is accountable for the execution of operational support to the fleet, aligned through nine warfare areas.

The NOOC vision is to be identified by the Naval warfighter as the sole source for global oceanographic, riverine, and atmospheric knowledge. With 24/7 reachback to production centers, and a small military footprint forward, NOOC provides an asymmetric warfighting advantage by exploiting the current and future state of the environment.
